Ivey References - what do they ask

A photo of maynards maynards
Hi, I was wondering what admission officers ask your references if they are ever called.


would they juts run through your essays and ask to see if i did all those things?

or would it be like a oral recommendation letter, asking "what do you think of this guy ? What type of a person is he?"

thanks.

They just confirm your activity.

generally, how do they pick which references to ask? is it completely random or do they pick activities that are unique and rare to confirm?

Did you get reference calls when you were applying?

as in any process, reference calls happen at the end for the most qualified candidates. So if your grades, essays, and activities are good enough, they will contact your references to confirm the validity of your application. At least that's how it's done in work place..
